    Meaty, fresh light fruit, much cultivated light oak - classic ex BC profile very round and full - but I do not notice the age otherwise so much - no notes - but not particularly oily - could have maturity even under 20 years
    • Nose

      cooked apples and pears with vanilla sauce, olive oil, roast beef with mustard crust, chicken stock with soup vegetables, caramel pudding, pine branches, freshly cut platters, grapefruit, lemon slices,
    • Taste
      89 89
      sweet and creamy, very dessert-like, apples, yellow melon, cooked lemon, mint, menthol, a lot of light creamy wood, wax, sawdust, herbal tea, fennel, celery, lavender,

  5. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Crazy that this should be a Bourboncask! At the same time fresh and hearty / meaty, one would like to bite and have more and more.
    • Nose
      Brilliant! Rarely had such a bourbon nose in life, very fruity and fresh, grapefruit, blood orange, green apple, lime, sour cherry, watermelon, maple syrup, honey, lemongrass, ginger and marzipan
    • Taste
      Parma ham, really hot steak in honey-rosemary sauce, what's going on here, honeydew melon, lime, grapefruit, blood orange, sour cherry, watermelon, maple syrup, ginger candied, marzipan, milk chocolate, raisins, raspberries, cumin, turmeric, lavender, lemon grass, coffee beans fresh
    • Finish
      Long to very long, honeydew melon, ginger, sweet malt, grapefruit, rosemary, cherry

  6. KayMeertens scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

      Malt, pear, grass, honey, apple compote, nuts and tangerine. Later vanilla pudding.
    • Taste
      Malt, fish eggs, apple, apricot, honey and tangerine.
    • Finish
      Malty, nutty and a little honey.

  10. magic_slim scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Again a very good example from this great distillery which never disappointed me so far - but unfortunately a little bit expensive as well ...
    • Nose
      Vanilla, malty and citrus fruits. Fresh mint. Clean and fresh. Must have been a very good cask.
    • Taste
      Powerful, malty and spicy (chili and pepper). Caramel.
    • Finish
      Long and warming with spices and caramel notes. Clean.
